As a parent of a college student, I know firsthand that affordability is important to our students and families. Ondine, home to University Success and Victor's Dining Hall, is one of our most affordable options on campus. First year students live on their own floors of the building in units with private bathrooms. Most first year students have a roommate, but students may designate a preference for a single room when signing up.
Moving to college to live on campus is a great decision. It connects you to your university, encourages involvement and helps support your academic success (not to mention being affordable and convenient!) But for many, this will be the first time living away from home. It’s a big step and it can be intimidating. We know you have a lot of questions and we’re here to help.
We know the last thing you need to worry about when you come to Portland State University for your first term is where you’ll live! You already have to deal with college applications, financial aid and scholarships essays. Not to mention jobs, chores, assignments and… you know, life.
Alright, you’ve made up your mind. You’re going to transfer to PSU and finish your degree. It’s time to start getting your application together. We know at times the process can be confusing, so we’ll go through each important date and deadline to explain what is needed from you.
Sometimes a plan comes together in the shadow of uncertainty. For Hayley Pritchard, a first year School Health Education major from Nevada City, California, the decision to pursue college was never so clear. “College wasn’t really on my radar.”
